Shiny

Two observations about "The Host" (new trailer below):

1.) When was the last time we had a talent-mismatch as profound as Andrew Niccol directing a Stephenie Meyer adaptation? I can't think of a recent example as striking (no, not "Thor," smartasses) - it's like if David Lynch had decided to film the "Gor" series instead of "Dune."

2.) I really like that the aliens' "signature" is apparently that all their tools, vehicles, weapons, etc. have a mirrored-chrome finish.
